Creations for a Cause

Why this is a great community & why I think you should support these causes.

Founded in 2016, Creations for a Cause has become a destination for real-life stories to thrive. We share stories that are both vital to the global community and aligned with your philanthropic values. We source earth-forward materials from businesses and partners we trust, supporting our communities and creating meaningful relationships with those around us. We exist to create experiences where our hearts and purpose come together.

We hear the voices in need quite loud and clear. Many of our efforts are focused on the youth and their families in at-risk, underserved communities. The faces we see – or do not see – in these communities have names, experiences, and stories about how their basic needs are not met because of the lack of access to resources. These communities need the most support whether it be through funding, empowerment, or education.

The mission is to connect people to a purpose. Think Globally, Act Locally.

We go beyond buying the creation from your local online store. We fund causes globally because we recognize our responsibility to the world. This commitment and how we do business every day is meant to inspire humanity.

We support and empower communities in underdeveloped countries by increasing knowledge and access to resources. We develop strategic and targeted action plans based on the community need.

Creations for a Cause seeks to make a global impact on communities at-risk, one community at a time. We aim to build more resilient communities through collaborative planning and action. In doing so, we want to alleviate suffering and bring about hope and change to these underserved communities.

The Causes:

Support Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

– There are over one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
– Lebanon is the 3rd top refugee hosting country 
70 % of Syrian families live below the poverty line on less than USD 3.84 per person a day
– Since 2011, the conflict has affected 80 % of Syrian children – 8.4 million lives 

Support Literacy in African Women

Women traditionally have less access to education in Africa. According to research, Ivory Coast is the country that has the highest illiteracy rate for women. The biggest barrier is the lack of resources in schools, especially in rural areas. To address this issue, we will partner with one school that assists females, to develop and improve their infrastructure for a better environment that promotes learning and increased access to resources (school buildings, furniture and fittings, water, sanitation and electricity).

– More than 1 in 3 adults cannot read.
–  182 million adults are unable to read and write.
– 48 million youths (ages 15-24) are illiterate.
– 22% of primary aged children are not in school.
– That makes 30 million primary aged children who are not in school.

 

To help support these causes you can buy some of their amazing products: chokers, bracelets, pants, anklets… Just one item makes a big difference!
